How can I resize a image to upload to a listing?

If image software (Photoshop, Corel, Arcsoft) is installed on your computer we suggest using that to resize your images. If image software is not installed on your computer follow the the steps below to resize your image using Windows Paint.

  1. Click on Start choose All Programs choose Accessories then click on Paint.
  2. Once Paint is open click on File choose Open. Find the folder where the image is stored. Select the image and click Open.
  3. After the image is displayed in Paint, click on Image and choose Stretch/Skew.
  4. A dialog box will open. Change the horizontal and vertical setting to 50%. This will reduce your image.
  5. Click File choose Save As to rename your image. By saving the image by a different name this will keep your original image intact.

If this does not reduce your image small enough to upload, follow these steps again.
